Notes from organizer Steve Bruner :
I’ve been going through the meetup site and my notes, and I’ve identified a few ideas that you have expressed interest in. Some are related to WordPress, and some are ideas related to the meetup itself:
-Getting WP up & running and Customized
-Installing BuddyPress
-A better way to add job opportunities to our community
-A better place to find local help

So I’ve decided to combine them all into a social experiment, and have us create a BuddyPress site for WordPress users in NYC!

As a group we can use this site to post job opportunities, ask for help from local WordPress experts or just socialize. When we meet every month, we can decide on changes we want to make to our site and make them live.

So this month we’ll take the initial steps:
-We’ll do a live install of WordPress from scratch. Uploading from FTP, creating the database and full install.
-Install and configure BuddyPress and Forum
-Install any necessary plugins

As always, there will be time at the end of the Meetup for beginners to ask specific questions.
